Giving back to the local community

CHARITY OF THEYEAR

Each year we select a small local charity to support for an entire year with various fundraising and volunteering activities. We understand how challenging it can be for smaller charities to raise vital funds and generate awareness of their cause which is why we started our Charity of the Year scheme.

Next Fundraising Event: Tough Mudder – August 2024

AboutAlive

Alive Activites is one of the leading practitioners in the UK of meaningful activity for older people in care. Not only do they provide meaningful engagement in care homes, they provide community activity and support through their meeting centres and community gardening.

Alive started as one man’s vision in 2009 who, from personal experience, saw care for those living with dementia at home and in care homes needed to be improved and overhauled. Tim Lloyd-Yeates saw older people not being provided with the opportunities, engagement and activity they needed and not being treated with the dignity they deserved.

Alive Activities run a range of innovative community and care home projects, bringing art, sport, IT, gardening and intergenerational connections to older people. They also work online with their subscription service Alive On Demand, and they deliver face-to-face in groups and in care homes.
